Looking nice, and that is on my list of mod.
Where did you get it from?

I was terrified by what I was going to see with the topic title "chrome wrapped".

But glad it is this. .And not the car gone all Diouf's SLR on us!

It is a big upgrade. Well done.

Had the work done in Mansfield @ www.pwpro.co.uk

I think next is to spray the grill vents and the silver grill in the bumper.

Red and Chrome do not mix well IMHO.

Then I think is some quads on the rear

As much as this would suit the "Mansfield Strip". I do hope you're joking?!

Why ruin a perfectly good example?

The lower side grills are accessible through the wheel arch liner,it's a wheels off job.
I'd imagine to get to the the central grill you'll need to drop the engine undercover,you might also be able to get to the side grills via this way.

Ha funny you've done this, I'm loving chrome at the mo.

Just put my OE chrome grills back in (and they look great) and am looking how I can ditch the shadow gloss and get chrome trim instead!

Any ideas?
